Our Fab Feb workshop covered how to use the basic electronic components (switch, potentiometer, resistor, capacitor etc) and introduce how to control a micro-controller, Atmega 168 using the open-source Arduino software.
19th February 2011
11am - 5pm
In this workshop, participants created their own lighting patterns, such as texts and images and also develop a simple game, using a bespoke pre-designed led-matrix circuit.
Check out this example video of the DIY PACMAN game.
All that was needed is:
- a power supply (output: 12V, over 1A): Yes! Finally something to do with all those old phone chargers! Please check your power chargers for a mobile phone, a computer or other electronic devices.
- If you already have an Arduino Duemilanove board, please bring it along - let us know if you need to borrow one.
- a laptop if you can, with Arduino and Processing software installed.
No prior computer programming experience necessary.
This fantastic workshop was led by Eunjoo Shin, www.ejoo.org. EunJoo is a media artist, researcher and lecturer. She has currently invested in her interests surrounding the “biological human.” Her artwork has been featured all over the world, and her recent work, Vocal Trio, was selected as one of the best interactive designs in the annual design yearbook, CREATIO.
As usual, this workshop was for women only.
